BRAZEN flytippers have dumped couches and beds just yards from a North Ayrshire Council building.

The unwanted household items, including two couches, two chairs, two single bed frames, two single mattresses,a double bed frame, a double mattress, a fridge and some wardrobes were ditched in Byrehill Road in Pennyburn - right next to Montgomerie House - the KA Leisure hub and former base for the Council’s cleansing department.

The shocking dump has left one resident furious. He discovered the rubbish when he and his partner took their children to watch the trains pass.

Speaking to the Times he hit out at the “disgusting” flytippers.

The resident, who asked not to be named, said: “I often take the kids to that wee bit to watch the trains go by but when we went down the other day I couldn’t believe my eyes.

“Someone had dumped two couches, two chairs, three beds and a fridge. Then there was loads of bits of broken wardrobes scattered all over the place. It’s absolutely disgraceful behaviour.

“Why do they think they have a right to do that and not dispose of them the proper way like everyone else does?”

Following the report of the flytipping bosses at North Ayrshire Council attended the scene to clear up and were able to identify a suspected culprit from the rubbish left at the scene.

A North Ayrshire Council spokesperson said: “We were notified on Friday and following a thorough investigation have identified a local resident from the items left at the scene and enforcement procedures have started.

“We would like to thank members of the public for getting in touch. While our environmental enforcement team regularly patrol hot-spots and issue fixed-penalty notices, they also rely heavily on information coming from the public.

“We are aware of issues at this area of land and are looking to come up with a long term and sustainable solution.

“Fly-tipping is a crime which we take very seriously and we are determined to reduce the impact this has on communities across North Ayrshire. Our environmental enforcement team – including our first fly-tipping officer - have issued in excess of 430 fixed penalty notices over the past two years.

“The team are visible and patrol ‘hotspot’ areas. People are now also reporting more environmental crimes because they know we will take decisive action.

“We would urge anyone with information, like they did in this to case, to please get in touch and we will investigate thoroughly.”
